Summary: I have all linear power amps since 1990 and over the years I truly put speakers to the test with these amps !! I also don't make excuses for any stereo equipment. So this is an honest opinion. These Pioneers ROCK !! And for the price, this is a killer deal. Stereo places sell these for about twice as much. So if you want a GOOD set of speakers without spending too much, these are it.
